“Uncle Jim Raleigh”

An Irishman for St. Patrick’s Day!  This is my great grandmother’s brother James Raleigh from Limerick, Ireland.  He remained in Ireland while most of his siblings came to the U.S.  This photo was taken about 1915.  “Uncle Jim Raleigh” is written on the back.Burke -- Uncle Jim Raleigh

One thought on ““Uncle Jim Raleigh”

  1. I love this picture of your Uncle Jim! Do you know the names of his siblings? I have been searching my great grandfather Michael D Raleigh who emigrated from Limerick to the USA around 1868. He settled in Brooklyn, NY and married Mary O’Neill either in Ireland or Brooklyn. They had 6 boys and 1 girl including my grandfather Edward Jerome Raleigh. If you have any info at all on these Raleighs, I would love to hear it.
    Thank you.
